Reichsgraf Von Kesselstatt Josephshofer Riesling Kabinett 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

At more than 650 years old, Reichsgraf von Kesselstatt is one of the most historical Riesling properties in the Mosel. No other German wine estate owns as many top single vineyard sites along the Mosel, Saar, and Ruwer rivers. Their steep slovep all require hand harvesting. Josephshofer, the estate's Monopole site is located in the middle Mosel. This wine in beautifully structured with a brilliant play of natural sweetness and acidity, capturing pure mineral notes within enticing aromas and flavors of tropical fruit

For years, Annegret and Gerhard Gartner have created a nearly perfect harmony between their personal and professional lives – something only a few married couples succeed in doing. Not only are they inseparable from one another, but also from their work. It comes as no surprise – nearly everything revolves around food and wine. The wines are uncompromisingly and consistently subject to the highest quality standards. This commitment has earned the estate recognition and respect, and has been confirmed by many prizes and awards by leadinging publications, such as the German gourmet magazine Feinschmecker, the critical wine guide Gault Millau, and the American wine magazine Wine Spectator (including vintner of the year) – to name but a few. Weingut Reichsgraf von Kesselstatt is more than 650 years old and thus, one of the most historical estates in the Mosel-Saar-Ruwer region. In 1978, the Günther Reh family acquired the estate from the Reichsgrafen (imperial counts) of Kesselstatt. Today, Annegret Reh-Gartner and her husband Gerhard Gartner carry on this Riesling tradition. In 1999, headquarters moved from Palais Keselstatt in Trier to Schloss Marienlay in the Ruwer Valley. Here, optimal conditions were created for producing Riesling wines that are on a par with the finest wines of the world. No other wine estate in Germany has such an unusually broad spectrum of top vineyards in all three river valleys of the Mosel-Saar-Ruwer region. They are sites that number among the best white wine vineyards of the world. The estate owns 36 hectares (89 acres) of vines, all of which are on steep slopes. All work in the vineyards is exclusively done by hand. The estate’s guiding principle: the quality of the terroir should be reflected in a wine. Read less

Bright golden color with clear evidence of fizz as it hits the glass. Golden raisins and peach are carried on notes of gasoline into your nose. Tiny bubble-rich green apples and lemon shortbread cookies cascade along the palate. A sweet, lime-drenched finish. A classic low-alcohol German Riesling fit for any and every Sunday Brunch celebration.

(Past tasting 16 Jun 2013) Strong floral nose, with melon and pear on palate.
